East High hosts partnership brunch


YOUNGSTOWN — “Communication is key” was the resounding message from today’s Reimaging Parent-School Relationship Brunch at East High School.

“There has got to be an understanding on both ends, between parents, teachers and students,” said Pastor Lock Beachum Jr. of Victory Christian Center in Liberty.

Pastor Beachum and Judge Carla J. Baldwin of Youngstown Municipal Court were the keynote speakers. Joining them was a panel of city school district employees such as Roshay Huff, ninth-grade academy principal; Jerrald Fordham, former substitute teacher; and Adam Loudin, East High teacher. Also on hand was Councilman Julius Oliver, D-1st.

In late 2017, the Youngstown City Schools received a $249,500 federal School Improvement Grant through the Ohio Department of Education to improve family and community engagement at East High School.
